. let's preserve freedom and choice and health care. fine, keep the obama care health plans in place. give those as an option for individuals. but we should also give individuals the freedom to choose a plan that doesn't have the mandate of coverages because that is what is driving up the cost. >> it doesn't work. >> it's not going to work anyway. but if you want to set this up as an insurance pool which means you're paying insurance and you're a man and you don't want to have paternity coverage, you've got to pay it too. that's the way it works out. and i'm not arguing whether this should have been done or not, that's the only way it works. >> it's not working out. >> but that's -- what you're talking about is -- >> does anybody believe the cost curve has been bent down? i mean -- >> there are arguments. i'm not picking up the flag and waving with this, but if you have peter orszag or somebody else come in, they will say, yes, it will bend. >> it is also because of what was happening with things like health savings accounts and higher deductible plans, which is really where the move

something in place to stop that? and my comment is everybody is keep talking about president obama, they're blaming president obama for this and that, but the one thing that they have to remember, everybody has to remember that he can't do it alone. he can't do anything by himself. thank you, and i'll hear your comment. >> guest: well, certainly on your last point, that's right. i think that there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. one of the things that -- a positive aspect about the budget deal that seems to be developing, small though it is, is that it would be an instance in which the democrats and the republicans have agreed on on something and that the white house presumably is okay with. so it may be a short deal, but at least it would be something that had bipartisan support. on the food stamp question, you know, i think that food stamp costs, you know, went up with the economy. when the economy went down, you know, that raises food stamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down, but there's really still certainly a ne

't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep our doctor if we liked them also. there have been a lot of things the president hasn't come through with. i think this is one of them and i think this is the difference between democrats and republicans. democrats are promising you something but not coming through. republicans are promising a real solution. this is also, we have had 50 years of trying government stimulus and it hasn't worked. now we're going to try a free market stimulus where the money gets in the hands of the businesses that can use it successfully to create jobs. >> let's turn the topic to race. let's be honest, senator, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about minorities. what's your plan? >

and keep him in peace. >> we have been listening to president obama touching tribute to nelson mandela, the former president of south africa who passed away this evening. he is one of countless of millions who drew inspiration from mandela's life. the president was truly touched and sent his condolences to the family and the people of south africa. >> he reminded us that his first political action came against apartheid. he referred to him as mandela's nickname in south africa. that is what you hear him called on the streets of south africa. he quoted martin luther king who said the arc of the moral universe bends towards justice and he referred to mandela as one of the people who bent that arc towards justice. the president is clearly moved by the example of mandela and said he would spend the rest of his life trying to learn from and live up to the example of mandela. >> thanks for that wrap up. we will have much more straight ahead. the american dream is of a better future, a confident retirement. those dreams, there's just no way we're going to let them die. ♪ like they helped mi

it up there, the comments from bill clinton about obama care, when the former president said the current president should honor its commitment to allow people to keep their health care plans. let's play it once more, just for feeling. >> so i personally believe even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they've got. >> does this give the secretary of state the cover that she needs from the obama care situation right now? >> well, look, you know, i think that one of the big problems -- i think, look, bill clinton is the best strategist that the democrats have right now so i think he was essentially acknowledging the risks that many democrats face right now, being so closely associated with some of the mistakes of obama care. but in reality, i think that a.b. has a really good point, which is that he is actually going to be somebody who helps drive the wedge between president obama and hillary clinton but i think that van has a good point in the sense that there's really not a whole lot

look for that right here. in the meantime, republicans are trying to keep the focus on the website's problems and targeting blue senators in red states reminding mid-term voters that senate dems voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation
